A special goal for Harry Forrester

Interviews and highlights on iFollow

Harry Forrester said that his stunning strike against Bristol Rovers was up there with the best in his career – and he dedicated his goal to the memory of Bradley Lowery.

The attacking midfielder, who is on a season-long loan from Rangers, gave an interview for iFollow after the 3-1 win in which he talked about young Sunderland fan Bradley, who won the hearts of a nation with his brave battle against cancer.

"I noticed the #Thumbsupforbradley post on Twitter about the young lad who died of cancer and that goal is for him," said Harry. "It was a nice finish and that one is for him. It is up there (with the best goals in my career). I got into the position I like to get in behind the midfield and in front of their defence. I turned and I thought if I get half a yard I will hit it. I caught it sweet and to see it go in the top corner was a nice feeling. I would like to score more goals. I am on two goals now, but I want to contribute more goals and that is a good start."

Harry believes the squad can build on the victory now and he is enjoying life at AFC Wimbledon since making the switch from Rangers in August.

"We've got a great team spirit here," added Harry. "All the lads are together, whether they are playing, on the bench, or not in the squad. We are all as one with the management staff and we enjoy working every day. You can see that when we score goals. Even when Cody missed his chance, everyone gets around him, because he works so hard for the team. He came up with an unbelievable strike in the end. We've had a couple of decent results now and we have to keep it going. We have a chance to build a good platform going into Christmas."

The full interview with Harry, plus Neal's full reaction, and highlights, are now on iFollow. Extended highlights will feature from 12 noon on our premium channel.
